Hi guys. I am trying to have two monitors active at the same time so i can watch movies on my computer. I have a radeon 7750, but it has no vga display output. I was able to watch movies before on my tv with the integrated hd4200 using the vga output but cant do that anymore, tv doesnt recognize it when i plug it in.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks

First you have to connect both your monitor and TV into the 7750 because the integrated GPU is disabled when you plug a discrete GPU in.

So I take it your TV does not have HDMI in? If your GPU does not output Analog on the DVI port then a DVI to VGA adapter will not work. There are a lot of different 7750 out there so without knowing the exact make/model it is hard to say. But I do know on my Sapphire 6950 only one of my DVI ports would work with a DVI to VGA adapter and that was the last card I have even used VGA with.

I would try connecting your TV to the other DVI port and see if that will work for you.
